Pre-Arranging a Funeral

Pre-arranging your own service or even something as simple as selecting a funeral company that will take care of the arrangements prior, will alleviate stress on family members at the time someone dies. Don’t just use the Funeral Director that the family has used for years. This decision may cost your family in more ways than just price. Please be aware that all funerals vary in cost depending on choices made, and it is therefore not always possible to give a firm quote on price.  At Townsville Cremations, we pride ourselves on not only the service we provide, but also being value for money and going above and beyond for our families.

As funeral arrangements are a daunting task, many families and individuals have asked us to preplan a funeral to ease the strain of arranging a service when people are at their most emotional. This is a helpful option, as it will take away the tendency to make and regret emotional driven choices and decisions. If you take away the strain by pre-planning the service, you have time to consider all of the options.

Once you have completed these arrangements you should keep this information with your personal papers and advise family members or friends of its location. It is a good idea to also allow Townsville cremations to keep a copy in their files for safe keeping and easy access and we guarantee to keep these arrangements indefinitely for your peace of mind. You may review the information contained and make any necessary changes with us at any time.

When someone enters a Nursing Home/Aged care facility, it is mostly a requirement that a Funeral Director is nominated. Townsville Cremations provides a service to these facilities that if a family has NOT selected a Funeral Director, we will transfer the deceased into our care free of charge, so that the family may make the decision of which Funeral Director to use without the stress of a hasty decision.

Most Funeral Directors have an After Hours Transfer Fee and some even have a Mortuary Holding Fee. At Townsville Cremations we only charge a small fee for transfers, and do not a have Mortuary Holding Fee at all. We don’t believe that you or your family should be penalized if the death occurs after hours.
